The midday start at Supertubes coincided with the low tide so that contestants would have the benefit of the hard sand.

There were three divisions, the 2km youngsters run, the 12km run (beach, bush and riverside terrain) and the 28km run (beach and farmland terrain).

“It was quite a tough run with a head wind against us but the route was spectacular; running along Supertubes beach and then into the Kabeljous Nature reserve,” said women’s winner Sally Waterworth.

28km Men:
1. Izak Van Der Merwe (2hr13)
